ARME (Animal Rescue Media Education) got the call that a facility was willing to release them to us after they had been used in several tests.’ Read more on HuffingtonPost

Inspiring: This Terminally Ill Child’s Final Wish Was To Meet The Rock. 8 Years Later, The Movie Star Is Making Good


When 9-year-old Jacob Marshall was diagnosed with terminal leukemia, his final wish was to meet his hero, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The wrestler and movie star heard about Jacob’s wish and decided to make his young fan’s dream come true. Eight years later, The Rock showed up to give his No. 1 supporter an amazing one-on-one.

Back in 2006, Jacob’s doctors gave him a week to live. Family, friends, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation reached out to the The Scorpion King star, hoping he could send a letter or signed DVD to Jacob. What happened was even better: The Rock himself showed up in person after eight years to spend time with his biggest fan.

A truly amazing visit for a truly amazing kid.

The Rock plays heroes on the big screen, but the most incredible hero he plays is the one in real life. He was only scheduled to spend 30 minutes with Jacob, but he ended up staying for over an hour.

“He’s a brave little guy,” The Rock said. “He should be out there running around with the other kids, and all I wanted to do was make his day a little brighter. I was happy to spend some time with him.”

Simply incredible!

Take note, Hollywood: It doesn’t require a lot to make a sick fan’s dreams come true. The Rock’s actions have proved that.

Lab Monkeys See Sunlight For First Time

Using animals in for scientific testing has been a controversial issue for years. It’s easy to look down on animals as simply not human, so they don’t deserve to be treated in a humane way. But after watching this clip of lab imprisoned chimps being let outside for the first time, you can see how similar we truly are to our ape cousins as they literally cheer, dance, and hug in celebration. The video is featured on HuffingtonPost.

 

Rough translation of the German from a YouTuber:

For the first time in their lives, the chimps see the sun. They lived in a lab for decades and this is the first moment they get to walk outside. “They hugged as if saying ‘we’re finally free’.. and after such a long time, it’s as if they’re saying ‘I can’t believe it!’ to their friends.” At 1:30 the man talks about how he saw a chimp looking at a butterfly and remembering it from her childhood.
